Debian Hardware :: No Driver For Onboard Network Card - Asrock H97M ITx / AC
Sep 28, 2014
The ethernet adapter on my Asrock H97M ITx/AC motherboard isn't recognized during install. It's a Qualcomm Atheros AR8171 and none of the available options like alx or e1000e are working.
I originally tried to install openmediavault [URL] .... - which is based on debian - from an USB Stick and only came up tothe point where it tries to recognize the network card. It couldn't and promted me to choose one manually. So I checked the specs of my motherboard (a shiny new Asrock H97M ITx/AC with a Qualcomm Atheros AR8171) and after a short search I narrowed it down to alx or e1000e. Both of which only triggered a short flash of the interface and nothing more. I guess that's linux' way of sticking its tongue out at me.
For the last 2 days I therefore searched high and low and came across many possible solutions that either didn't work or included too much linux lingo that I couldn't understand it.
One solutions was to install a vanilla debian and then somehow install OMV over it, but debian itself couldn't recognize the network card either. So now I have a pretty minimal debian (CD1 install only) running but how to make it recognize and use the onboard network device.
Just out of curiosity, I plugged in an old hard drive with Win7 that hasn't been updated for at least 10 months. It only had a driver for AR8131 and warned me of using that, but it worked totally fine. Debian however doesn't even try to use an old driver but just flashes its interface at me.
Is there a way to make it work or is this board just not supported by debian and I have to resort to some other distro or a windows installation?
I'm running hardware already considered legacy and I was made painfully aware that those drivers, for ATI cards, are only available from Jessie repositories; yet, somehow I was able to have my system configured to run not the stock drivers the system used for installation but, allegedly, proprietary drivers.
I did notice an overall improvement on how the system displays everything on the screen but after fumbling around the system trying to install a game I had a message warning that only software acceleration was activated and not full hardware acceleration, which was what I was aiming at.
After going through a lot of guides on the web I was able to:
a) discover the system is running MESA drivers (or so I have understood) b) install headers for my system but somehow along the way I fumbled whatever I was doing and I probably now have a lot of loose ends in the system
Being Debian (and rock solid) the system is still running smoothly but I really want to clean up after myself and correct what I can and improve where is possible.
I just installed Linux Mint 9 as a dual boot install with Win XP. Trying to activate wireless network card driver and video driver. Pops up: "You are not authorized to perform this action".How do I get authorized?
Now every time I boot Win XP, the Internet Explorer menu bar is all blacked out and goofy. If I log out and back in it corrects itself. If I reboot it's blacked out again. Re-installed IE8. Still blacks out.Also Firefox in Win XP crashes expectantly. It has NEVER crashed on me previously.
I use 64-bit Ubuntu Lucid. This machine has an onboard Nvidia sound chip (which can not be disabled in BIOS), I also have an Soundblaster Audigy 2 card, which i'd rather use.
Previously, this was impossible because Ubuntu could only configure the first card. However, with the event of 10.4 and the easy-to-use selector in Sound Preferences I was hopeful that it would work now. But no luck.
I should mention that this machine dual boots to Win XP, and the Audigy works like a charm there, so it must be a Ubuntu problem. The Audigy 2 card is detected by Ubuntu, and is selectable in Sound Preferences, playback is fine with no errors, the source appears in Sound Preferences, but no sound.
These are the steps I have tried, without success:
- Disable the on-board card in Sound Preferences - Cranking all the sliders to max in Alsamixer - Checking that there's no mute in Alsamixer, Sound Preferences, Volume Control - Adding lines to the bottom of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base making the Audigy the default card (0), and the Nvidia secondary (1). The output of
i had put my kubuntu to sleep on ram, when i powered up again i lot power, now when i boot into kubuntu i have no networkif i do an ifconfig i don't see eth0 anymorealso sudo ifup eth0 returns an error saying, 'ignoring unknown interface'
After I tried to make my onboard video card (radeon x1250) work with openGL (I didn't succeed), it went bad. I get this error when I attempt to start VirtualBox: VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so",) failed: libatiuki.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Other software also misbehave.how to "reset" the video drivers?
I'm looking at upgrading my motherboard and graphics card. Ideally, I'd like to have 2 monitors running at once (DVI), and an output to an LCD projector (HDMI). If I can't have all 3 working at once, I'd like the 2 monitors on all the time (off the graphics card), and then switch from the monitors to the HDMI output so that only the projector is getting video.
So, If I get a motherboard with onboard HDMI, would it be possible to run the HDMI out at the same time as the graphics card output?
I installed Edubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Optiplex GX260. This system has onboard INtell 846G series video. I want to install an NVIDIA video card. I popped it in the case, diabled the onboard video. I get the POST, the GRUB, no problem. But once I get past the GRUB, all I get is a blank screen. The HDD does not sound like Ubuntu is loading.
i am testing the opensuse 11 installation on the Eee pc (Eee Box B202). My installation source is in the network drive but i can't seem to point it to this destination because the network card is not detected. This Eee pc is using a jmicron network card and i can't seem to find any related drivers on the net.
I'm trying to configure my network card using the b43 driver. I'm running 10.04.2 on the kernel version 2.6.35-25-generic-pae.
Surprisingly, I was able to connect to my home wireless network using the b43 driver without a problem. The only issue is that it doesn't automatically connect. I have to use the following command in order to get it to work:
After typing my password, I wait for 10 seconds and am automatically connected. My question is, how do I configure my system to do this for me permanently (or at least automatically) so I don't have to type it every time I log on?
I have installed wubi inside windows7. My laptop is dell inspiron. I am not able to connect to internet via wifi. My network card is DW1501 and does not have a linux driver. The windows7 driver has 2 .sys and 3 .dll files and no .inf files. Thats why i cannot install ndiswrapper also.
I just built a computer and the onboard nic pluggin is loose and won't register or connect right... so I had to put another nic card in pci to connect to wired network for internet. Problem now is its delaying something fierce... i'm thinking if i can manage to uninstall or disable the onboard nic maybe things would work better... problem is i wouldn't know how to do it... I know hardware is connected via a document somewhere in the file system... if I were to delete the file would that disable the nic or would it just reinstall itself on the next boot?
I have used a wireless LAN PCI card for 3 years and now I want to switch back to the onboard wired LAN card but I cant get it to recognize and I have enabled it in BIOS also the wireless LAN card has been removed.Should I put it back in and then try to switch?
I know there are many threads on similar issues but I can't find anything that will work. Not sure if I need drivers or what to do - I feel really stupid as I should be able to get this right but I am at a brick wall. Basically I have a 20inch monitor hooked up to the on-board graphics card and cannot get higher resolution than 900 x 600. It should be at 1280 by 1240. This is a brand new install with the latest Ubuntu 10. Under monitor preferences its says 'unknown' for monitor type and I don't have any driver disk for this screen but never needed one previously.
I have a Netgear WG511GE PCMCIA card, and a driver from the original installation disk. I used an ndiswrapper-utils gui called ndisgtk to install the driver. I then do the following to verify an installation:
Unfortunately, when I put the PCMCIA card in, nothing happens. On Windows, a green light flashes even if the card is not connected to any network. At first I thought this might be a hardware issue, so I did #lspci and got:
Lo and behold, when I put a different unbranded Wireless PC Card in it works. I'm no expert in Networks, but to me this suggests a driver problem (i.e. the card is physically detected it just won't work). However, the correct driver was installed with ndisgtk and this was verified with #ndiswrapper -l, hence the confusion.
I'd be grateful if anyone else has had this problem/knows of this problem and is willing to share the solution with me/point me in the right direction. So far, Google has returned a few posts from a few years ago talking about patching kernels and manually building files etc (just before Prism54 became integrated into the Linux kernel).
I have installed Fedora 14 on Intel's DH67BL mother board, which has a on board LAN port, Fedora 14 does not detect on-board LAN. Unfortunately, intel does not provide any driver support for linux OS :-(. However, if I install an additional LAN card, Fedora 14 detects it and everything works fine.
I'm having trouble getting X to work after switching from onboard intel video to a 5000 series ATI card. Apparently I need to switch to a MESA or fglrx driver. I did a sudo apt-get install fglrx-driver and it installed but still no X. I'm currently using Karmic. I've tried to boot with a live CD which works fine and changed the xorg file manual but that was a mess.
When I start I get a checking battery state ... done and it stays there forever sometimes and sometimes I can login but without x. Typing startx gives me a long list that says check the xorg website. I've been looking around for a way to fix this and haven't been able to get it working.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an old family laptop. It is a Compaq Presario V2000. Everything works perfectly except no wireless networks are recognized, even though I know there are available networks. My network controller is detected but is not doing it's job, which is finding available wireless networks! Using "system testing" I found this out about my network controller:
"Detecting your network controller(s):
Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10) Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)"
I'm setting up an LTSP server using Ubuntu 10.4 64bit, and PXE connecting with thin clients using Atheros cards. The ltsp environment is 32bit.
Unfortunately I get an error message with "No interfaces found! Aborting..." and a kernel panic early during PXE boot.
After an enormous amount of investigation, I've narrowed it down to (probably) being the fact that the ltsp chroot environment doesn't have the correct driver for my network card (I believe it's atl1c). The correct driver IS available in Ubuntu, though, as I can successfully boot the thin client from both 64bit and 32bit live CDs and bring up the network interface.
how can I install the correct driver in the PXE environment?
I am having a terrible time getting any networking to work with a new RedHat Enterprise 6 64 bit install. I am installing on an HP Proliant DL380G7.I have downloaded the driver - hp-netxtreme2-6.2.23-2.src.rpm from the HP website.Followed directions and did the following:1.Build Environment Setup - installed redhat-rpm-config and kernel-devel2.Installed the source (hp-netxtreme) rpm.3. Build the Binary RPM - installed rpm-build and ran the following:rpmbuild -bb /root/rpmbuild/SPECS/hp-netxtreme2.specIt runs through the build process and near the end I get the following:make -C /lib/modules/2.6.3271.el6.x86_64/build UBDIRS=/root/rpmbuild/BUILD/hpnetxtreme26.2.23/obj/default/bnx2-2.0.23b/src modulesexpr: syntax erromake: Entering directory '/usr/src/kernels/2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64'/usr/src/kernels/2.6.32-1.el6.x86_64/arch/x86/makefile:81: stack protector enabled but no compiler supportmake: gcc: command not found
I installed newest Ubuntu system, 11.04, Natty-Narwhal, and PC is running smoothly. It is solid machine, Celeron 430, 1 gb of DDR2 memory and I have both LAN card and graphics integrated on the mobo which is MSI 7529, based on G31/P35/P31 chipset.
I plugged lan cable directly from my PC to the ADSL router. There is another Win Xp machine on the same router and it has connection, and internet is working fine. Right now Im writing from the Win 7 laptop, which is connected to the same router via wifi link... all working like a charm...
But, when I plug the Ubuntu desk I cannot get access to bot lan and internet...
I searched the net and it seems that ubuntu didnt install proper driver during the OS installation. Here are some diagnostics of the current config and state:
Code: Module Size Used by binfmt_misc 13213 1 snd_hda_codec_realtek 255820 1 code....
As you can see I need to install driver named r8101 instead this one r8169 and I think it will work that way. I found driver here only problem is dont know how to replace them.
Im using RHEL 4.2, here in bios level onboard network port is detecting. But when trying to fetch that network port i cant able to connect internet. when i put ifconfig eth1 the port is not available in onboard.
I have a new machine with an Intel 82579lm network card (needs an e1000e driver, I believe). I got Debian installed, but it doesn't have access to the Internet, because it needs a driver for that card. So, I managed to download the card driver on another computer and transfer it to this computer. Problem is that when I run 'make install' for the card driver, it turns out that my Debian install doesn't have 'make'.
I could compile the card source on another computer with Debian. Problem is that computer has a different architecture (old amd 32 bit machine vs. new intel i7 64 bit) than the machine with the problem card. Am guessing that the compiled driver module won't work on a different kind of machine.
Another possibility is to check in synaptic on my old 32-bit machine and use "Generate package download script" to determine where synaptic is getting the 'make' package from and all its dependencies. I also would need to modify the downloads to get the packages for the 64bit machine. *Assuming* that a) the dependencies in Synaptic on the old 32-bit machine will be the same as for a 64bit machine and b) I correctly identify all necessary packages and their proper names for the amd64 architecture, I should be able to move the files to the new machine and compile what I need to compile.
